Texas Uniform Trade Secrets Act
Texas has joined the vast majority of states by enacting into law a version of the Uniform Trade Secrets Act. For years, Texas has recognized a claim for misappropriation of trade secrets, but the new law allows a prevailing plaintiff to recover attorney fees if certain conditions are met. Also, it allows a defendant who beats the claim to recover attorney fees if the claim for misappropriation is brought in bad faith. The new Texas law becomes effective September 1, 2013.
